The Foretelling Dream
I had a dream one night. It was creepy but not terrifying. I was with my mother in a large room with several other relatives. I don’t recall how we got there but I remember the rest vividly. The thing was, all the other relatives were… dead. They were all women; cousins of my mom sisters, aunts etc. I told them that they were all dead and asked what they were doing there. They just smiled at me and continued speaking to my mother. I couldn’t make out or remember what they were saying to her. My mom’s sister and my aunt said that she (my mother) was going to stay. I started yelling I don’t want to stay here you are all dead! A lady I didn’t know said, “No, no. You are not staying and can go back, but your mother will be joining them soon.” I woke up and was disturbed to say the least. I told my mom about the dream but left out the part of her staying behind. It was less than two months later that my mother died of stomach cancer. I don’t know if it was my own intuition or actual spirits warning me or just a coincidence, but I will miss my mother for the rest of my life.
